    Pros

    The pros are self evident. You get to work from home, so you save on gas, clothing and time.

    Cons

    You will be translating for some of the most ignorant people on earth; people who did not finish grade school in many cases. It is one call after the other working with people who can't spell their last name. It gets very frustrating after some time. No paid holidays and no real incentives. The company will also manage the queue to control the amount of time you get paid for. I have been here for about a year and a half and I am wishing for a new job more and more as every day goes by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to increase pay and provide real benefits as well as paid holidays and all those nice things American works usually get.

    Pros

    Good training. Work from home. That's the only pro for me. I really can't think of any other good thing about this company.

    Cons

    It is customary for the telephonic interpreters to be paid by the minute. This company pays by the hour and swamps you with more calls than you can handle without straining. If you compare the hourly pay of this company with what the others in the industry pay, they are 50% under.
